Occasionally I wandered in where I was not wanted and gave truthful answers.
Sometimes I even did it deliberately. A little disruption now can prevent disaster later.

Thinking by blogging
It doesn't take very much effort to see where my focus has been this week. All those quotes. A NeoNote about defending faith.

Almost always and especially with evangelical Christians, there's a demand to "justify" your faith. That isn't what they really mean of course. They want to know why they should even consider your faith when their faith is absolutest. By their standard, you must wreck their faith before considering yours.

But how do you justify falling in love? How do you justify friendship? How do you justify respecting your favorite uncle or aunt? It's about the relationship, not the justification.

Oh, they don't want to acknowledge it, but their own Holy Book allows for other gods. Right there in the top ten list. The Biblical First Commandment doesn't say there are no other gods, it says don't have (worship) any gods before G*d. A distinction that is usually lost on the absolutist monotheist.

The next bit that usually comes up is how to worship.

Best to leave that to the debates.
